Cozy Sitting Area with Sleeper Chair

Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Home DecorAnneke McConnellComment

Whether you have room for guests in a dedicated room or not, it's nice to have some alternative sleeping options for visitors. One of the easiest ways to do this is with a sleeper sofa or chair.  There's nothing extra to store away or a space that is not being used all that much (depending on how often you have guests!). 

This edesign showcases a simple and inviting chair to relax in, but it can also be opened into a twin mattress bed when needed. Win-win!

Before diving into design details, a couple sales worth noting:

I hope you enjoy this edesign and find it inspiring for your own home!  I'm especially loving those pillows!!!

Our PNW Beach House Patio Makeover Plan

Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Home Decor, Our Home, Our Beach HouseAnneke McConnell

Our beach house is relatively tiny and living in the Pacific Northwest Seattle area means that when it's warm and sunny outside, you want to make the most of it!  Updating our patio space for the Summer has been "on deck" for awhile now, and I'm so excited to share more of the transformation on Instagram as this plan comes to life! Here are a few things to keep in mind:

 

1. The patio is an extension of our home, but also where we really spend A LOT of our time during the Summer months June-September. The weather is typically between 70s and 80s and perfect for playing outside, beach activities, walks, kayaking, boating, outside dining, etc.

 

2. We LOVE to have people over to hang out, eat good food, let the kids play, etc.  Updating our patio dining area has been HUGE on my wishlist for the past couple of years, so I'm pretty excited about this new outdoor dining set to welcome family and friends alike. With the added space, we can host larger groups than other times of the year when it's gray and rainy outside.

 

3. We're a "down to earth" kind of family and things can get messy, so whatever we planned for the patio had to accommodate fishing activities (the fire pit area is also where we'll need a spot for bait boxes, coolers, etc. as we come and go during launching).  Our kiddos and their friends are also often running across the deck from one house to the next or from the beach side of the house to the street/back lot side. Sand is flying, rock treasures abound, etc. and so I've been brainstorming design ideas to make this patio a happy balance between a "beautiful and calm oasis" to "family-friendly fun zone". :-)

 

Some of the items in today's design we already own (like the outdoor sectional) and others are on order slowly arriving one by one.  This will definitely be completed in a few phases.  

Let's dive into the design plan for the three different sections of the patio: the lounge area, the dining area, and the fire pit area (also right off the boat ramp and multipurpose utility area).

Foldable adirondack chairs were a MUST for this space since we need to be able to move everything out of the way for fishing gear at different times. 

 

There can definitely be more components when it comes to an outdoor space since they may be multiple "zones" you're working with.  This kind of feels like three rooms in one. :-)  We're excited to share the process and how it all comes together, and hopefully it inspires you and gives you ideas for your own patio or porch space!

I'll share updates as we move along (hopefully writing more too)! It's crazy town here at the end of the school year!! xoxo

Beach House Master Bedroom Progress

Bedroom, Coastal InteriorsAnneke McConnell

Hey friends! The Beach House Master Bedroom Project is moving along quickly and I'm excited to share the final AFTER soon! The plan has changed a bit since I first shared the edesign plan we were going for - you can see the original plan HERE.

Our bedding has arrived from Serena & Lily (on major sale right now!), and I'm so excited about their linen duvet cover and shams - nothing says beach house like linen, right? 

Also, after reading more reviews of the original desk we chose, many people said the color was very different from the photo, so I switched it up and went with this pretty white writing desk (also acting as a nightstand). Needless to say, I.LOVE.IT!!!! It fits our space perfectly and is exactly what we need with two small side drawers and a center laptop tray drawer.

More to come soon, but here are some "not so perfect" progress shots!

 

 

I couldn't have done all of this installing of window shades and curtains without my husband Michael!  He has been a HUGE help! Thanks babe!

 

 

We also got one of my favorite affordable traverse rods installed on all of the four windows.  It takes a bit of extra time, but pinching the hooks closed before mounting the rod on the wall is well worth the effort in the long run - I'm saying that from experience of them sliding out easily!

 

SHOP THE LOOK

 

We're still waiting on a handful of items to arrive like our new bed, but I'll keep you posted as it comes together! Thanks for stopping by today!

Beach House Master Bedroom Makeover Idea

Bedroom, Coastal Interiors, Master Bedroom, Our Beach HouseAnneke McConnell

Hey friends! Today's edesign is a little personal as it's the first concept for our very own Master Bedroom at the Beach House. To say I'm excited is an understatement!

Without going into it too much right now, fingers crossed we'll be building a couple houses this upcoming year, one to move in to and one to sell.  Come follow along on instagram, because you can bet I'll be sharing ALL about the process in stories! We're still finalizing some reports and backend logistics, but so far everything is pointing in the right direction. I'm anxiously waiting to meet up with our architect!

Now.....I have to be clear. We are NEVER getting rid of our Beach House.....never ever EVER. There's a lot more to the story behind why building is the right move for us, and hopefully I can share that in time, but the homes will be relatively close by, and I'll share more as details unfold.

Right now we really want to get back to that feeling in our beach house of when we had it listed as a simple, uncluttered vacation rental home, and as a family of five, that can be challenging in a space with little built-in storage and under 2000 square feet.  The decorating process has been slower than I'd like with this home, and we've played musical rooms more times than I can count, but that's ok. If anything, making a house a home IS a process.  We're putting A LOT into these big build projects, so this makeover is on the relatively affordable side.

Here's the plan for the beach house master bedroom!

Beach House Master Bedroom Makeover Plan.png

Houzz Sonneman 1-Light Palo Wall Lamp in Black Brass / Houzz Beige Upholstered Diamond Tufted Wingback Bed / McGee & Co. SEASCAPE 2 Artwork / Target White Linen Look Curtains (10 colors available) / Bed Bad & Beyond European Pillow Sham in Navy/White / Serena & Lily Addie Stripe Tassel Pillow Cover / Target Cream Paisley Throw Pillow / Brass Hat or Purse Wall Hooks / Bed Bath & Beyond Blue Paisley Duvet Cover Set / Pottery Barn Chunky Wool & JUTE Rug in Natural (also available in gray) / Live Fiddle Fig Leaf Plant / Joss and Main 3-Piece Seagrass Basket Set / Target Gilford Gray Desk / Houzz Claudia Fabric Dining Chair 

 

A couple notes:

1. Over time, I've learned what really makes me happy, and it comes down to neutrals with navy and deep greens.  I want our bedroom to feel open and airy, yet grounded and calm.

2. There are a few items missing from this design board like some new Natural Shades and Blue Armchair (I just ordered this today and am so excited about the price!), a mirror, dresser, art, etc.

3. We decided to try a desk next to the bed and use it as a nightstand as well.  We are also working on making a guest room more user friendly, and our room has more space to add a desk, so we're giving it a go!
